He was harnessed and wore a helmet, but was hesitant about continuing. An L.A. County Sheriff’s Department deputy said to him softly, “Breathe, take some air in. You’re OK.” Contreras, 11, finished the ropes challenge course by rappelling down a rope. His fellow Camp Courage members cheered, as did several deputies.

By Martin Wisckol | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: June 7, 2018 at 8:53 am | UPDATED: June 7, 2018 at 9:56 pm Los Angeles County hosts eight of the state’s best beaches when it comes to water quality — and two of the worst, according to the annual Beach Report Card issued by Heal the Bay on Thursday. Of the 37 state beaches with perfect scores, three are on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, four are in Malibu and one is in El Segundo. Making the top 10 Beach Bummers list are San Pedro’s Cabrillo Beach on the harbor side, which has made the list eight of the last 10 years, and the Santa Monica Pier, which has had the distinction seven times in the last decade. Another perennial Beach Bummer, Mother’s Beach in Marina del Rey, dropped out of the top 10 for the first time since 2013. It received an “A” during the summer and during dry winter months, but an “F” during raining periods.

Anthony Fenech Detroit Free Press Published 10:53 p.m. UTC May 31, 2018 As the top of the ninth inning wound down on Thursday with the Tigers leading comfortably and closer Shane Greene needing only one more out for the team’s best series win of the season, Mike Fiers began the party. Fiers, the veteran starting pitcher whose performances this season are indicative of the Tigers’ resiliency, triumphantly pumped a plastic goose in the air. In less than 24 hours, after an intruding goose was chased off the Comerica Park field during a rain delay and then flew into the facing of the second deck, the goose, or at least its plastic doppleganger, has become the Tigers’ unofficial mascot. In the decoy's first game in the dugout — sitting on the railing throughout — the Tigers hammered the Angels, 6-2. They took three out of four games from an AL playoff contender, have won four consecutive series at home and created further optimism that this team, … [Read more...] about Detroit Tigers feeling goosed after series win over L.A.
